Retrive CPU Temperature

C/C++
# include "Particle.h"

int getTempC(String args)
{
  Process proc = Process::run("vcgencmd measure_temp");
  proc.wait(); // The output is temp=43.5'C, so read past the = and parse the number
  proc.out().find("=");
  float cpuTemp = proc.out().parseFloat();
  Particle.publish("cpu-temp", String(cpuTemp));
  return 0;
}

void setup()
{
  Particle.function("getTempC", getTempC);
}

void loop()
{
  // Nothing in the loop
}
